The Legend of Robin Hood (TV show 1968)
Opposite David Watson's Robin Hood, Noel played Alan-a-Dale in a musical version of the famous story.
Noel's main part in the programme was to perform a series of songs linking the various scenes.
Douglas Fairbanks Jr starred as King Richard while Roddy McDowall played Prince John in the show which was produced by the NBC network in America.
A recording of the programme exists in the Paley Centre for Media in New York and thewindmillsofyourmind.com has an off-air recording from the time.
Speaking about the show in a 1968 interview, Noel seemed somewhat dismissive about it, saying he would have preferred his songs to sound more like the Beatles or Donovan.
He said: "I thought the music lent itself very well to the Robin Hood period. Sammy Cahn listened to my records, said 'Yes, that's very nice', and then sat down and wrote some typical Cahn Van Heusen songs. It's a television extravaganza, good in those terms, but it's more like a pantomime than anything else. The BBC would have done it differently, but I'd have got nothing for it and nothing out of it."
Having listened to the programme, Noel was right, it is not very good. A montage of Noel's songs can be heard here.
